Or maybe you just want to enjoy a comforting meal on a busy weeknight without spending hours in the kitchen -again, the answer is these Mexican Short Rib Tacos.
I know you’re getting the picture here…. and it’s all true! This is one of the best beef tacos I’ve EVER had which is why I had to include them inside my Taco Tuesday Cookbook! The meat is so smoky and tender, I promise the first time I tried this recipe I couldn’t help but think “Did I really just make this?”!
You might be thinking, “Short Ribs? That sounds complicated… “. Not this recipe my friend, because you’ll be putting that slow cooker to use!
Since the key to fall off the bone, tender beef is for it to cook low and slow, it’s the perfect recipe for a slow cooker day. You know, one of those days where you know it’s going to be super busy but it would be awesome to come back home to an awesome meal.
The chipotle peppers in adobo sauce add a depth of smoky flavor that puts the Mexican in these Mexican Short Ribs Tacos. You’ll find the peppers in the Latin section of the grocery store, and while you getting them, go ahead and grab a few cans, you’ll need them for some other recipes in the Taco Tuesday Cookbook.
If you haven’t cooked much with these peppers they do add some spice, so keep that in mind if you are feeding these tacos to kids or a crowd. But they are never too spicy once you add a little cheese and sour cream.
Since this recipe feeds 8 people, I love making it for a midweek dinner -like on Tuesdays 😉 and then I’ll use leftovers over salads, quesadillas, and even pan-fried with rice -think Mexican fried rice. Woah!
The best part is that my kids love this recipe. In fact, they seem to love all sorts of foods when wrapped in a tortilla, which is another inspiration behind the Taco Tuesday Cookbook. With three picky eaters, I found that they enjoyed trying new foods if it was served to them in a way that they are familiar with- tacos.
If you love tacos as much as we do, make sure to check out all the other taco recipes on this website. I’m quite obsessed with them as you might have already figured out.Print
